"The most important things to know ...

I'd love nothing more than to be able to postdebate this all day, I'll have to wait until later. It's my day off and I have a list of tasks that require my attention... Hahaha... You need a 'socially useless' job such as my own, then no guilt comes when you spend your day posting ;) Or to be a high...

America has the debt and not much else. Id agree, I dont think you can say America is on the "winning side" as such, your right that china can't turn round and say "we need our money back tomorrow" without the world grinding to a hault, but they dont need to, there rich enough as it is. I find the ...

Yep, I realise they already are there to a large degree, I just don't think people realise quite how much. The debt was what I was referencing with their economic policy. The thing with debt though, is they can never redeem (is that the right word?) their debt. Take America. America is soooo far in...

Pete, what do you mean 'will be'? They may be lacking an internal market like most capitalist countries but in international trade... well, they get it *very* well and most of the western world is already well in their debt. And, fwiw, much like anywhere else in the world if you're Chinese and have...

China's just a few generations behind us, it'll be the biggest capitalist bastard on the face of the planet inside our lifetimes... Well, yours! I doubt that greatly. They don't have the same mindset as countries like the US. They are great "copiers" but have never been pioneers or leaders in any f...

Best thing ever. In China, there was this magazine that had a picture of Obama dressed as Mao, and it was hailing how awesome a leader Obama is.

Again, all the problems you're listed could be resolved with regulation and education. I find the idea of legalizing drugs and then operating some grey market pretty crazy. Are you sure they are fully legalised or just decriminalized? And brain cells, yep, they're good, but then there have never be...

Hahaha, it's not hard to get to chat to Mr Turner, just go to a show in the States and shout at him, he'll respond eventually! I agree in the current climate it's cut backs rather than increased public expenditure that is required. Britain is so royally fucked when quantitive easing ends, we will h...

I guess what you have to ask yourself is just because they're hard to change, does that make them less or more worthy a focus? Take the attitude of both the US and the UK towards race and sexuality, two of the biggest issues of the last 100 years - do you not think they were worth changing more tha...

Surely you must be more in Ron Paul's camp no? Or do you have zero hope of no one other than Republican / Democrat? What's Row v Wade?

At the end of the day i think none of them offer anything like the solution, hence my joining LPUK. I realise it's small and derided but fuck it, better to join a party that on the whole represent my beliefs and that I don't have to feel like i'm trying to change from the inside, than sticking with...
